A million in liquid assets is an extremely lofty goal. Is it even possible? Of course. To make $1,000,000 in five years I will need to:
Save $200,000 per year
Save $16,666 per month
Save $3,846 per week
Save $549 per day
Keep in mind this is saving $X.XX per year and does not include expenses.
I mandatorily put away $400 per month for investing and permanent savings, and after I get paid (from any source) I put away 60% if not more. Since I started working, I have been putting away roughly $685 per month. My current savings per month needs to increase by 2,400% immediately to meet my goal by 27.
